After serving as a pastor for over 20 years, including at a  multiethnic church in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, Clint headed back to graduate school to earn a doctorate in English (composition, rhetoric, and linguistics). He earned a Ph.D. in English from Middle Tennessee State University in May 2016.


After arriving at Northwest University in 2015, Clint set to work preparing students to be effective writers in the marketplace of ideas. He teaches courses in composition, professional editing, business writing, business communication, rhetoric, and African-American Literature. He serves as co-instructor for UCOR: Identity and Vocation, a first-year experience course required for new N.U. students each fall.


Clint enjoys drawing, painting, watching movies, attending live theater, cooking, hiking, and hanging out with his wife of nearly 30 years. Clint and Sally are parents to two grown children (ages 28 and 25). Their daughter Abby Stovall works at Northwest University in Student Life and Housing. Their son-in-law Tyler is a student at Northwest University majoring in secondary science education.
